Recruiting talent in the heart of EU Politics

Contact Our European Team

Hanson Search Brussels has been supporting the region in placing mid to senior professionals across PR, communications, public affairs, government relations, policy and marketing roles for over a decade. Working with multinational corporates to high growth Fin-Tech businesses, agencies and NGOs we have developed a trusted network of the finest industry professional in Brussels. 


Brussels has a rich and diverse culture, with a multitude of European nationalities, skills, experiences and industry backgrounds, which can bring its own set of unique challenges to finding talent.  


Our experience of the Brussels landscape, coupled with our industry knowledge in recruiting into the highly regulated markets such as healthcare, technology, financial services, energy, environments, transport and sustainability, means we can support both businesses and agencies looking to grow their teams in this region.


Our European search team comes from a range of industry and European backgrounds which gives us an unrivalled insight into cultural nuances and industry specialisms, the latest industry trends and where the new up-and-coming talent is. This means we are expertly placed to find you the very best skillset to fit your company’s culture and requirements to give you a competitive edge. 


We take a proactive approach to recruitment and have placed some of the very best candidates in roles ranging from Head of Public Affairs, Director of Government Relations, European Corporate Affairs Director, Head of Communications, PR Manager, Policy Director, Regulatory Advisors, Digital Marketing Managers, Campaign Directors and CMOs. 


As trusted advisors to our clients, we run a number of webinars and events aimed at in-house and agency markets. We have organised panel discussions with market experts on The Evolution of Public Affairs from an EU perspective and more recently on The Future of the EU Post Brexit. Our EU Public Affairs consultant lead Barbara Ozanon was invited to speak at the Public Affairs Council during a webinar on “Adapting your Skills to the Future of the Public Affairs Job Market".
